The NBA Secretary General Isiaka Olagunju, Monday evening announced via social media that the controversial NBA 2015 Constitution (as amended) has been approved and registered by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC). The approval was given on the 24th of May, 2017.
It will be recalled that on the 30th of March, 2017 the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja voided the amended Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Constitution.
Delivering judgment in a suit brought by Olasupo Ojo against the Incorporated Trustees of NBA, Justice John Tsoho held that the amended constitution breached sections 597 and 598 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA), especially as it relates to the registration of the amended constitution.
The court further held that the effect of the non-registration of the constitution was to render it void, pursuant to Section 600 of CAMA.
The Nigerian Bar Association had since appealed that ruling.
